A Zucchini Post

Posted by terrepruitt on November 15, 2017

I could have sworn I posted about shredded zucchini before but I can’t find that I did. I was looking through my ideas on things to post and I came across this picture of chicken and shredded zucchini in a tortilla. I just snapped it really quick thinking I could share it somewhere, but that I had already written about shredded zucchini. But I guess I have not. Could be because there really isn’t that much to write about it. It is just a different way to prepare zucchini. Instead of slicing it into rounds and steaming it or roasting it, shredded it with a cheese grater. Then you can add it to whatever you want. I know there are a lot recipes for zucchini cakes, like crab cakes. I just found one in my recipe folder that I want to try. But this is even less complicated. Just shred the zucchini and cook it.

I normally cook it in a pan with either oil or butter and garlic salt. I often add it to pasta. That is my favorite way to use it. It kind of gives the pasta a creamy texture. Or sometimes as you can see, I add it to chicken and put it in a tortilla. It is just another way for us to consume vegetables.

Ahhh, I found it. Instead of “shredded zucchini” I called it “grated zucchini”. More accurate, I’d say. Well, in that post (Grated Zucchini is GREAT) I talked about grated zucchini in rice (YUM!) and I added to a turkey concoction. Doesn’t sound like I liked the concoction all that much.  I liked the turkey and zucchini, but not what I made with it. So this is just another way to use the grated zucchini . . . with chicken.  There is also a post Zucchini Has Antioxidants and Vitamins, in case you are interested.

Yum. Making me hungry.

Is there a veggie that you like to grate/shred and use in your cooking?
